High Power Microwave Tubes: Basics and Trends, Volume 2
- Vishal Kesari, B. N. Basu
- January 2018
Our aim in this book is to present a bird's-eye-view of microwave tubes (MWTs) that continue to be important despite competitive incursions from solid-state devices. We have presented a broad and introductory survey that we hope the readers would be encouraged to read rather than going through lengthier books, and subsequently explore the field of MWTs further in selected areas of relevance to their respective interests. We hope that this book will motivate newcomers to pursue research in MWTs, and offer the opportunity for readers an overview of the salient features and prospects, as well as the trends and progress of them. The scope of ever-expanding applications of MWTs in the high-power and high-frequency regime will sustain and intensify the research and development in MWTs in coming years.
Volume 2 begins with an overview of conventional MWTs leading through to a thorough overview of different types of MWTs including a chapter on fast-wave tubes, vacuum microelectronic tubes and frequency and power ranges. The book finishes with an epilogue that sums up the authors' attempt to bring out the various aspects of the basics of, and trends in, high-power MWTs.
